As per its usual schedule, Tesla has pushed out its Full Self-Driving Beta 10.6 update this weekend to users enrolled in their program.
The update provides a detailed changelog of improvements, which includes better object detection, better unprotected left turns, better merging and more.
The full changelog reads:
- Improved object detection network architecture for non-VRUs (e.g. cars, trucks, buses). 7% higher recall. 16% lower depth error, and 21% lower velocity error for crossing vehicles.
- New visibility network with 18.5% less mean relative error.
- New general static object network with 17% precision improvements in high curvature and nighttime cases.
- Improved stopping position at unprotected left turns while yielding to oncoming objects, using object predictions beyond the crossing point.
- Allow more room for longitudinal alignment during merges by incorporating modelling of merge region end.
- Improved comfort when offsetting for objects that are cutting out of your lane.
James Locke is one of the first to upload a video showing the software in action, and was able to manage a 10-minute drive in a residential neighbourhood without any interventions. See that below.
